After such a long drive to get to Cahersiveen, its nice to break the trip and just walk around. This nice church in the middle of town and is slightly different from some of the other ones is just that nice break.

There are so many beautiful churches in Ireland and this one rates right up with the best of them. The ONLY church in Ireland not named after a saint. If you are doing the Ring of Kerry, don't miss this stop in Cahersiven.
